Key Lime Pie Cheesecake Bars


Remember how last month was my husband’s birthday?

Well, our birthdays are exactly 4 weeks apart, and in accordance with our long standing tradition – it’s my choice for dinner tomorrow night! Here’s the best part – I don’t have to make it!

I’m passing the kitchen reigns over to my husband for the day and I’ve assigned him these Key Lime Pie Cheesecake Bars to make for my special dessert.

Let’s just say he’s not the most talented man in the kitchen, but I’m confident he can make these beautiful bars because they are just so simple!

One of my favorite parts is the flakey and buttery Pillsbury crescent crust. It’s different than a typical Key Lime Pie because there is no graham cracker crust, but trust me, you won’t miss it in this sweet and tangy dessert.

Let’s talk about the Key Lime Pie Cheesecake filling…

First of all, Key Lime Pie.

Second of all, Cheesecake.

Can I get a’ Amen!?

Seriously sheeples, these bars are incredible. They’re bright, rich, creamy, cheery and the PERFECT treat to celebrate any occasion (birthdays, holidays, Tuesdays, etc.).

  1. Excellent choice for dessert. One of my all time favorite desserts is key lime pie. I had key lime cheesecake last month at the Cheesecake Factory in Seattle. It was wonderfully piquant and subtle at
    the same time. I look forward to making these bars.

  2. Mouthwatering dessert! It looks very delicious!

  3. You certainly can get an Amen!! These bars look incredible! I love that you used a Pillsbury crescent crust instead of the typical crust for cheesecake! Pinned!

  4. You should have called me over. How did I miss these little treasures! Key lime is one of my favourites!

  5. Hey, I made these and they turned out horrible! I don’t know if I put too much lime grating in, or what but they were the most awful thing I ever made. The pillsbury dough didn’t cook all the way for some reason, and I put it in for like an additional ten minutes. I forgot to refrigerate it for three hours though! I don’t know if I put too much key lime juice in or what. I honestly have no idea what I did wrong, I ended up throwing the whole thing away. I squeezed out my own juice from key limes. I knew that was a problem, because man that was hard, so I’d probably just buy it at the store next time. If they sell it there.

    • Oh, super bummer that they didn’t turn out for you. Did you make sure to pre bake the crust? Also letting it set in the fridge for at least 3 hours would definitely help with flavor and texture. Cheesecake needs that time to settle. I’m sorry that you didn’t enjoy it, but I hope you’ll give it another try, they really are amazing. :)

      • Okay. I don’t remember whether I pre-baked the crust or not, I thought I did but now I’m not sure. Maybe I will make it again sometime! Thanks for the quick reply and help!
